What to Expect

Our First Call

During our first phone call I will introduce myself and then move toward discussing your needs and expectations for services. You will have an opportunity to ask any clarifying questions and/or receive additional information needed to determine if my services are an appropriate fit for you. If you contact me during a time that I am unavailable you can leave a voicemail message and I will call you back in less than 24-hours, unless it is a weekend. When I call, I will ask, “Is this an okay time to talk?” to make sure you have the time and/or in a location where you can talk freely. If you cannot talk, we’ll figure out a better time to speak.

After Our Call

I will follow-up our phone call with an email confirming your appointment time, office location, as well as direct you to my page to complete new client forms. These forms will be used to collect background information about you and your situation, as well as explain the policies. It is recommended that these forms be completed prior to the initial session (if possible) so that we can devote most of our time to your presenting concerns.

First Appointment

I like to use the first appointment to review confidentiality and also build rapport. After briefly reviewing necessary forms I will ask you to provide some information including “what brought you in for counseling or life coaching and why now?” Depending on the time available, we can begin to formulate some counseling or life coaching goals to work on in future appointments. At the end of the session I will ask you “if you would like to continue working together and if you think the services I provide would be a good fit for you?” If the answer is yes, I will talk with you about scheduling a future appointment.

After Your First Appointment

We will work together to determine what the appropriate course of treatment will be as well as discuss approximately how many sessions you may need.

I hope this explanation is helpful. Please contact me if you would like to set up your initial counseling or life coaching appointment at 310-734-4251 or email me at Dr.hjett@gmail.com.
